I believe the 3810 was reactivated not too long ago. Nice to see they didn't repaint it!

Speaking of blue loco's... does anyone have an update on 8312? It appearently had it's engine modified and was put back together and sent to altoona for emissions testing. No word on what happened after that. Is it being put back into service?

Saw that there is now just 8 blue loco's left on NS roster. The 2 sd38's 3804 & 3810 have been retired? Just 6 sd 50's left and the 2 dash-8's.

Yes, they're gone. NS purged the remaining PC/CR SD38s from its roster this summer.

Cut up? Or is it going to be converted to a SD40E?

Thanks,

When should we start counting Conrail units that are rolling around and still in blue but long sents purged from CSX and NS?
no matter the weather or the country I'll still be trackside!
